The Rundown, 10/29

House Democratic leaders will roll out their health care plan today, holding a rally on the West Front of the Capitol, which should give progressives many opportunities to cheer for the public option, as Pelosi's version is expected to be of the robust variety...though a compromise over reimbursement rates might draw only polite liberal applause.

A point of interest for any foreign-affairs buffs, Israel supporters, citizens of the world, or nuclear eschatologists: Iran will give its formal reply to the UN Atomic Energy Agency's proposed deal, which would see the country's low-grade enriched uranium shipped to Russia for further enrichment and returned.

President Obama, with health care on his mind and with the House plan rolled out, will talk it out with his fellow partymen in a health care meeting with congressional Democrats at the White House. Not sure if Joe Lieberman is invited...

Slapping transparency directly in the face once again, the House Democratic Caucus will also hold a closed-door meeting at the Capitol.

Hillary Clinton, meanwhile, will still be in Pakistan.

And the Bureau of Labor Statistics will release its data on unemployment insurance claims in the last week, giving us a mini-indicator before the full unemployment numbers come out next month.
